president obama's former campaign manager david plouffe and steve schmidt talk about the 2012 election. both mr. playoff and mr. schmidt attended the university of delaware. >> welcome back to the national agenda program. i'm director for the center of political communication. this is the final program of the 2012 presidential election season. i'm very very pleased that all of you are here tonight and i know that's a tribute to our two guest speakers this evening. two years ago in the wake of the sha lacking president obama took in the midterm congressional elections, the architect of the president's 2008 victory david plouffe stood on this stage and predicted the electorate voting in 2012 would be more diverse and younger than it was just two years earlier. he talked then about the growing latino electorate and he predicted that the obama campaign in 2012 would have to take advantage of those demographic opportunities. plouffe also predicted on this stage that the american people in 2012 would have had enough of republicans who were like glenn beck, sara palin and rush limbaugh. we are just
's not unique to this election or republican party. in 2004 many democrats believed he had a device on his shoulder so he would be given instructions during the debate. it's snanty. i think in our politics today both parties want to construct an image of their opponent that is not grounded in reaty. so the alternative universe. there are two. one is the romney campaign had an unrealistic view of what the electorate was going to be and that was one of the reasons they lost. certainly one of the reasons they went in the election confident. th wasn't an act. they thought they were going to win. but there is this view of barack obama. if you read and watch the conservative entertainment complex how could this guy get re-elected because we're socialist and week on terism and we're not honest and tt's not how most of america cease the president. even those that voted against us, most of them don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's an underestimating of your opponent's strength and the reality of how people view them. d there was a ridicule that i think -- i don't fully unders
also at fault. >> mr. samaras has become an inseparable part of ms. merkel's election campaign. she cannot admit to the german people in the run-up to elections that she made a mistake, that she is responsible for the coming recession and that the greek debts must be cut. >> the german finance minister continues to reject that option. he says he was confident that an agreement would be reached when eurozone ministers meet next week. >> chancellor angela merkel said there was no easy solution to the problems in athens, but she said she was confident that eurozone finance ministers would release that next round of bailout money next week. >> the leader of the opposition, however, accused merkel of failing to reveal the true cost of the measures to help greece and said this made it impossible to pass germany's own budget. our political correspondent has been following the budget debate for us. the chancellor faced some tough criticism on her handling of the year of crisis. what more can you tell us? >> indeed, one of the main critical voices was that of the social democratic leader, an
him, the people who elected him so he would defend the people. >> reporter: that could provoke more trouble after a weekend of violence hitting liberal and secular factions against morse's islamist supporters. last night in cairo, protesters threw rocks at police who fired back with tear gas. demonstrators also clashed with pro-morsi egyptians. attacks on the local offices of the muzz lum brotherhood left one teenager dead and dozens of people wounded. thousands of the president's backers staged rallies in several cities. >> we support mohamed morsi's correct decision and eventually the good from the bad will be distinguishable. we support dr. morsi. >> u.s. officials raised concerns about morsi's decree. today the state department's victoria newlyand called for calm. >> what is important to us is that these issues be slelgted through dialogues, that these issues be selgtzed democraticry. we are encouraged that the various important stakeholders in egypt are now talking to each other, that president morsi is consulting on the way forward but we're not going to prejudge where that wi
reelection in two years. you can read too much into this election. this was not a mandate. this was a popular vote to% election, even electoral votes when he looked at the states, separated by 2%, 3%, 4%. this was not some kind of major reelection when like reagan had, like even clnton had. clinton might think, won by 8%, reagan nine, ten, 11%. there is no real mandate here. so i can't see the republicans getting too overwhelmed by these ads. the president's new popularity numbers just came out. it's 51 percent. that is a pretty small jump for a guy you just won an election. tom: t only people are really concerned, two years from now there is another whole house -- house members that will be reelected. >> and they have to go back to district that elected them to lower taxes. so you go back to that district. you promise you'll never vote for a tax increase. taxes go up. tom: two years later. >> and membersof congress think about themselves and their reelection. tom: let me ask you bout retail. on the cusp of thanksgiving, but friday coming up. all kinds of issues. you are telling me before we
the church has its own processes, it don't elections, hard for some to understand and we have to respect individual institutions and the decision they make but it doesn't mean we should hold back and say what we think. i think it is clear in the time is right for women bishops. they need to get on with it and get with the program but you do have to respect the individual institutions when they're getting a shark fraud. >> the big country, e.u. agreed to by the last labor government, time for it costing taxpayers two billion pounds every single year. will the prime minister please confirm the forthcoming budget negotiations, he will not agree to any further reduction in this debate? >> i certainly give my hon. friend that assurance. the rebate negotiated by margaret thatcher is an incredibly important part of britain's position of making sure we get a fair deal. .. >> could i congratulate the prime minister on the wise decision to bring the gm summit. could i confirm to the prime minister the enthusiasm with which it's been received. could i ask him if he believes that it will be possible
will prevail as we move through the process. we need to be working together. the election was november 6. we won't have another one for two years and it's time to start pulling everybody together as the american people expect us to do know matter how they voted last november to begin to solve this big problem. >> as the leader mentioned, the issues with regard to the fiscal cliff is pretty straightforward and the president in his press conference shortly after the election stated its his goal and priority, jobs and the economy. ought to be about jobs and the economy. republicans couldn't agree with him more which is why the proposal the president has put forward to solve the fiscal cliff raises taxes on a million small businesses who employ 25% of the work force and an accounting firm has done a study has said if the president's proposal went into effect which is to raise taxes on the small businesses out there that it would cost us over 700,000 jobs and reduce take-home pay by 2% and reduce economic growth by 1.3%. what the president is proposing to do would hurt jobs and the economy, which
about protecting last election. it goes right after, it hits the middle class and lower income people the hardest of course because it is incredibly regressive. let me ask you, i feel like today when i was hearing talk about trying to close this gap we're looking under every oke for more money and more tax revenue. doesn't seem like we're cutting spending very much s that the right impression. >> keep in mind, melissa. you and i know this. a lot of viewers might not know, we have 5.3 trillion deficit because of one person, that is obama. he doesn't seem to change his behavioral patterns now so it is not getting any better. how could we his own budget come up with $5.3 trillion in four years and then say, now we have to somehow find $1.2 trillion for 10 years? meantime he will continue to go ahe and increase the deficit. so i don't have any faith in it. look, this morning i was on "fox & friends." i outlined a lot of alternatives we could do where we wouldn't have to raise taxes. one was, i already introduced legislation that would take care of that. we covered it at some length. but i
stayed with them as a colleague during the civil war and after grant was elected president initially appointed washburn secretary of state and washburn became very ill, after ten days he submitted his resignation to president grant show grant regretfully had his resignation and he regained his health which was always very fragile and grant the then offered him the position as minister of france, ambassador of france. >> michael hill on washburn, minister to france in the 1870 franco prussian war, and the only power of the state providing political and humanitarian support. q&a sunday night at 8:00 on c-span. >> now a discussion on entrepreneurship, immigration reform and innovation. economist douglas holtz-eakin and aol co-founder steve case, at the aspen institute for 30 minutes. >> next we have a panel on america and where it is going, steve clemens -- steve clemons is the empress area of washington ideas. >> hey, folks. everybody is running to the thompson reuters counter. thank you for joining us. great to be with you. i am steve -- steve clemons, editor of large of the atlantic,
politics over the next few weeks. the official campaign for their presidential election is about to begin. the latest polls suggest it will come down to a one-on-one race between the nominees of the ruling party and the main opposition. seven people registered their candidacy for the december 19th election. the main candidates are park geun-hye of the governing saenuri party and moon jae-in of the opposition democratic united party. a weekend opinion poll by public broadcaster kbs suggests nearly 42% of respondents support park geun-hye and about 40% back moon jae-in. whoever wins must address diplomatic relations with an important neighbor, japan. things have been a little rocky because of a territorial dispute. japan claims islands in the waters separating the nations, but south korea controls the territory. and both candidates say that's not up for negotiation. still, park says japan is an important friend. she wants to increase economic cooperation. moon says leaders of both countries should make efforts to prevent the past from hindering ties. but he's firmer on certain cases. he say
. he will also talk about the 2012 election and recent meetings at the white house between congressional leaders and president obama. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> we are delighted to have grover norquist with us. of course, he is president of americans for tax reform but in the spirit of full disclosure, he is also a member of our board of directors and a very important colleague. grover spoke here several months ago, i should say here at the center, but not in this room because we moved -- there may be some glitches, so i apologize in advance. i am sure we will do better next time. however, grover talked about taxes, u.s. economic policy. but that was about taxes and the electoral campaign. now we had elections and the taxes are at the center of a very important political debate and at the center of negotiations between the obama administration and congress, particularly the republican controlled house. as i watched the president during his recent press conference and listened to leaders of the house, i think everybody agrees it would be highly desirable to reach a c
weeks after the longest, most expensive and exhausting election in u.s. history eyes are turning to 2016 as speculation begins over the next batch of candidates lining up to run for president. >> who could that be? i know it's going to be a surprise. >> i know it is too. we're moving past these dynasties. >> exactly. >> of ruled politics for decades. republican up and comer jeb bush jr. says he would love to see his dad run for president, and rand paul says he's going to follow in his pop's footsteps too and hillary is going to run too. do you have to be related to somebody who has been president of the united states or run for president of the united states to actually do that yourself? >> i think that's what makes the names. here's jeb jr. >> your dad going to run for president? >> i don't know. no comment. i certainly hope so. >> which is it, i don't know or no comment? >> i think it's the i hope so. >> you said, i don't know, no comment, and i hope so, which are all kind of contradictory. >> give me the full loaf of bread right there. >> word is out of florida jeb is lining up for 20
agree with with what julia said. i think that you have to interpret these elections in two ways. on one side, you have the independent versus unionist vote. and in that way, i think you can safely say there has for the been a great deal of change in the sense that the big push towards pro independence parties are as asked for didn't happen. on the other side, you can clearly say that in the left versus right, there has been just a move towards the left. and in particular with parties towards pushed against austerity cuts. so i think the way to on interpret that is that it will be hard for an independence referendum, although he has already announced he will do so. and he had to do so ban he has always announced that he will do this whatever results come out of of the elections. but to do so, he will have to form a government with the left erc party, which he's fiercely against austerity. so i think that for rajoy, all this means that probably he is strengthened in the and itity independent side of the story, but also he will find it very hard to push further austerity that is needed to
, caught up with polls. resort have seen in this election cycle. and i think with latinos we cite polling with specific issues but is that a better understanding of where they're coming from you will get an understanding of why they're answering the questions that way. but i believe with the latino community, we lost the latino vote because of immigration. if we would have a better position on immigration, from the get-go, from the primary governor romney would've been competitive and it would've been competitive in those battleground states where the latino vote was decisive. and, finally, we have to stop being rockefeller republicans. we are not the party of the 47%. you know, when governor romney said what he did last week that obama won because it gives to latinos and other minorities, that's insulting. latinas didn't vote for obama because obamacare. i think he is engaging obama in the same type of class warfare discussion that obama wants to have. i think we have to go back to the conservative populism of ronald reagan, which is to talk about the economy. but i would say something i
before when the early voting numbers look good for us. >> you thought it long before the election. i know that. [laughter] >> but i was pretty sure -- >> how long? could he have one after the first debate or where the forces in motion? >> sure, absolutely he could have one. -- won. it was competitive the entire way. i think governor romney could have one up until the end. i always believe in the fundamental truth, we were building the best grass roots campaign in modern political history. we had the best candidate and the best message. >> in a way, the story of this election is the degree to which replicated the 2008 results. many people thought that 2008 was a once-in-a-lifetime result. you came very close to replicating it. i think the most fascinating statistic is african-americans in ohio, 11% of the electorate, 15% this time. you found 200,000 more african- american voters who turned out for you. mitt romney lost the state by 103,000. that was the election, right there. finding those extra african american voters. >> let me back up. we won this election because of barack obama. peopl
in a swing state, the co2 question played a major role in the election concerning the coal mining question. to avoid any other misunderstanding, i know what it means to close a coal mine for 35,000 inhabitants, most of them employed in the coal mine. when you close down the coal mine, it was an economic disaster. but today, the coal mine is closed down and you have an economically flourishing city. so it is possible to step away from a traditional industrial structure, with public financing and support to go into another direction. therefore we need more money in the european budget. [laughter] mali and congo, i set a lot about our common commitment, and where the values are challenged, wherever terrorism and terrorist groups try to destroy countries, to bring countries to the state of a failed state, as a basis for terrorist groups to export their terrorism, we must act. somalia is a symbol. what is happening in mali is a direct result of the libyan revolution. it is now distributed in the whole region. not only mali. a at a meeting with the king of morocco to tell me that for his country
own hanley work. will it's hope in the post election atmosphere this dynamic can change and mccain can proudly support his very own bill. let me close by saying i do think america is exceptional. it is the global melding pot, a place where the universal nation is being created. we may not do better in immigration than anyone before but we do assimilation better than anyone. people from all over the world come to this country and almost magically become real americans but part of being a real american is urging the country to look at its flaws and change them. let's get started. >>> as president obama readies for a second term, i wondered who could best shed light on the challenges he faces and how to deal with them. the president is an avid student of american history so i thought it was fitting to ask two great pulitzer prize-winning historians to sit down with me. robert carroll has written four biographies and jon meacham has a new book out on a twice elected president. the book is called "thomas jefferson: the art of power." listen in on my conversation with them. gentlemen, thank

. after that, more about the election with president obama's campaign master. later -- the evolution of facebook. >> the average new facebook user is in india or indonesia or brazil right now. they're using a mobile phone primarily to access facebook because they have not had access to a broad band connection. in a lot of cases there is not an infrastructure media of communications you have in the u.s. and lot of americans will leave me and say facebook is great for gossiping and to see what my friends are in for lunch, but if you were to talk to somebody in the middle east, maybe, you would hear a different story -- facebook was providing access to news, people that had unique access to information that they were not able to get out otherwise. you get a much more meaty story about what facebook means to them. >> facebook engineer chris cox with an insider's view of the company -- thanksgiving day on c-span. at 2:00 -- 2:00, chief justice john roberts. later, space pioneers and nash at -- nasa officials pay amash to the first man to walk on the moon, neil armstrong. >> federer reserv

to treat the complete control over the judicial system until a new parliament is elected. opposition politicians are calling for mass protests. they include a nobel peace laureate who says morsi has put egypt back on the path to dictatorship. >> this is a coup against the revolutionary legitimacy that brought him to power. these actions represent a takeover of the country's authorities and make him an even bigger dictator then mubarak. >> but morsi rejects the accusations and says he is working in the interests of all egyptians. he says he does not fear the opposition but that he needs to be strong to insure stability for all of the country. morsi says he wants the best for his people, but opposition is building and threatens the stability he wants to promote. >> for the latest, let's cross over to cairo and our correspondent there. just how serious is this unrest? could the egyptian army be called out now in force to keep order? >> there are reports now of morsi discussing the situation with the ministers of defense and the interior. the headquarters of the party of the muslim broth

of a debt write-down have been delayed until after next year's german elections. >> the deal would be put to vote on thursday or friday. >> it is not an easy sell for the defense of the idea of letting greece buy back its bonds at below market value. >> it is important to be fair and say that other eurozone countries should not be profitable. greece needs this. >> german chancellor angela merkel and her finance minister can count on the majority in parliament to support the plan, even though many lawmakers still had questions when they were being briefed. opposition parties have not yet laid down their position, but in the past, they have signaled that they will support continuing aid for greece, but the social democrats, germany's largest opposition party, wants more information. >> it is too early to determine what impact tonight's decision will have on the german budget. we have also not yet calculated what the consequences would be for the future of greek debt. >> as far as the opposition is concerned, a hair cut for greece is not off the table yet. if anything, it is being postponed
constitution by an overwhelming vote of 58-42. are unions losing strength despite the re-election of the most union friendly president in our lifetime? joining us, director of labor policy for mackinaw public policy in michigan. a huge failure? >> absolutely tone deaf. you talk about what happened in michigan, talk about them killing 18,000 jobs and killing the twinkie, and now walmart. you notice all the headlines and the protesters were outside the stores. they didn't have walmart associates on strike. david: jeff points out an interesting thing is they play on the concerns of the worker, even though the workers do not want to be unionized, they say, we help you get higher pay and better benefits, ect., even if you don't want to join us to lure them in. >> funny how they do it, taking business away from wal-mart to get better pay. it's dollars and cents, and it doesn't work that way. there's a corporate campaign, trying to hurt walmart's reputation, take their business, and walmart gives into something called neutrality agreement taking away the secret ballot of workers because they want a

is ticking. it's been three weeks since the election and congress really no closer to a deal on the fiscal cliff, unless they're not telling us something. that's a possibility. now both sides appear to be focusing on what they want to rule out rather than what they're willing to compromise on. we're live on capitol hill with the very latest. david: also, we held a small business summit right here on "after the bell," and it looks like the president was watching. he has invited small business owners to discuss what they want to see from congress. we'll be talking behind the closed doors with one of those who was behind the closed doors, the ceo of bottom line growth strategy, she was at the meeting. liz: david, are you feeling lucky? david: yes. liz: the powerball jackpot at a massive $500 million, but before you run out to buy your ticket, we're going to tell you what the real payouts are. i know that won't stop you, nonetheless, you'll still get a bunch of coin. is and where the money actually goes -- and where the money actually goes. ♪ [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk.

of a contentious presidential election campaign. >> reporter: after meeting with rice for more than an hour, collins emerged questioning her judgment in giving the public what turned out to be incorrect information in the days after the deadly attack in benghazi. and the main republican was lukewarm about the prospect of rice as secretary of state. if president obama were to nominate susan rice to be the next secretary of state, could you support that nomination? >> i would need to have additional information before i could support her nomination. >> reporter: collins has gone out of her way to support rice in the past. even introducing rice family ties to maine at a confirmation hearing for u.n. ambassador. >> the people of maine are proud of what this remarkable woman has accomplished. >> reporter: whether collins supports rice now for a promotion is crucial because of the raw numbers. rice would likely need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster by these gop senators assuming all 55 senator who is will caucus with democrats next year vote to confirm rice, she would still need five republicans

thank you for doing this. i'm here with my political philosophy elective and we are looking for some terms to discuss the broad issues at play. i am wondering what are the best set of terms to discuss a policy failure, like the war on drugs? is it simply a question of return on the best meant that the money spent versus results seen or a question of the rapid expansion of government? is there a more moral dimension? the incredible rise of incarceration rates that have had a profound affect on certain committees? what are the best terms to discuss this question? >> all of those of very good terms. another i would add -- it has to do with cell definition 3 who are we at the people, as a society? the war on drugs has been going on for 42 years. i do not know any other war we would tolerate going on for so long that we will losing in spending so much money on. as a people, we are a civilization that believes he should not do things that are bad for you and that for society. that was a big motivation behind prohibition as well. this matter of what you believe is more important wh
and before the iranian election? >> no, i have not given up on it at all. but i would like to be more clear in terms of our standpoint , it is not necessarily successful in those options, but other options, what options we really have in the negotiation? and to assess this in terms of political, strategic, and even moral abilities with what it is that should determine the nature of our own conduct. i would like to avoid a situation in which someone comes to us and says, a year has passed. there is no achievement. we want new red lines. and we are now in the danger zone. what would you have to do? and i'm not sure we have to do it. that is more likely if we have some alternative. all options are on the table. and i think the meaningful alternative is a combination of a kind of, if you will, a set of human rights policies towards the soviet union in the mid- mid-70s with, at the same time, an effort to reassure those in the region that are not more portable to intimidation or aggression and to convince the iranians that they would first have to take all the resources the united states possess

. remember how quickly he threw away his 70% approval rating from the 2008 election, when he went with the spend, spend, spend approach. he's now walking in with a 50-plus percent approval rating and going for tax and spends, tax and spend. i think he'll find his approval, begin to continue its way down from where it was when he first ran. and secondly, the republicans won the house of representatives, and they won it after redistricting, which means they're all running in the same districts for ten years, so, that republican majority is here for a long time and it's fairly comfortable, they're not going to be pushed back or bullied around. the president's gone in four years, the republican house is there for ten, and they all won, having voted for and debated and discussed and explained, the ryan plan, which is entitlement reform and tax reform. it is a tougher house than we've ever had capable. >> grover, i'm looking at your picture in the new york times of all places, your picture is in the new york times yesterday, saying-- i can't hold it up because, it's there. okay? there h
